Ben Folds ChatRoulette Improv Pretty Much Defines Awesome

So this clip has been circulating the internet lately, of a guy named Merton improvising piano accompanied songs about the people he connects with on ChatRoulette. He was great, really funny, but his style and hood and glasses made people wonder if it was Ben Folds. It wasn't. But you know what? This is:



Ben Folds ChatRoulette improved in front of a live audience. I don't think it gets any better than this.

Welcome to 2010. This is music meeting the internet in real time. This is awesome.

(Bonus points if you can name the second partner, the shirtless guy with the lip piercings before Ben starts singing. The internet just looped around like a giant snake and ate it's tail.)
